Annandale EyeCare proudly offers on-call triage for eye emergencies. We will assist you in determining the urgency of your specific problem, and arrange for you to be seen by an available provider; if needed.

For after-hours eye-related emergencies, established patients can call 703-941-4111 and follow the instructions to initiate care. If after 20 minutes you haven’t received a return call, we suggest you seek care at your local Emergency Department or Urgent Care.

Please avoid the following until you’ve seen our doctors:

  • Putting your previously prescribed medications or ointments in your eye

  • Putting in a friend’s or family member’s medication or ointment in your eye

  • Rubbing or applying pressure to your eye

  • Trying to remove a foreign object that is stuck in any part of your eye

  • Using tweezers, tools, or other instruments in your eye
